No copyrights whatsoever have expired on U.S. films released after 1963.

You haven't done your homework. Earthworm Tractors, for example, is already here in mpeg2 format:
http://www.archive.org/details/Earthworm_Tractors_movie
Remove titles that are already here in mpeg2 format, and indicate which of the remaining ones aren't here and which are here but aren't mpeg2.

When you submit a list like this, separate the British films. They must be handled differently than American films.

alright, sorry for sounding incompetent but let me clear a few things up, these are all films from the Mill Creek Hollywood Comedy 50 Movie Collection. I was ensuring that they were all PD and then I would upload any that are PD and not uploaded in MPEG2, so I'll look and see which aren't uploaded and ask about those specifically.

Thanks

Check each post-'63 film for copyright notices at the beginning and end. No notice means PD, at least on those you've listed. It gets more complicated after '78.

Thanks. I'll look at those once I have the set in my possession... I don't actually have it yet.
